Today I would like to introduce an new X-game sport which got invented by some skateboarder in US at 2006. The name of the new sport is called Freeline Skating. It was said that this new type of sport had combined the way of skating the Snowboard, Skateboard, Ski, Inline Skate, and much more.
This new sport had rise since 2006 and are progressing steadily now. You can already see lots of Freeline Skate videos through Youtube and you can see lots of players are from US, Japan and Korea. Too bad I haven’t saw any videos from Malaysia yet.
So, what is so fun about this new sport?
Firstly, It very small and compact. Compared to the skateboard, the sizes of the board(or you can’t call it a board anymore, it’s a pad) is about the size of the computer mouse. So it would be extremely easy for you to carry it around and skate it whenever you like.
Next, you can pump your speed up yourself. Unlike the skateboard, which you have to put your leg down and accelerate yourself, you can just turning your leg around and you can move on forward without doing some un-cool pushing works.
Then, it can jump like any other kind of X-games too. If you not believe then you can try and look at the videos from youtubes.
Finally, it’s cool! Everyone like new things, just like new laptop/gaming console. The Freeline Skate is still considereed very new although 4 years of time had passed. It’s still not much people knowing it existence and less people are skating it. So it will be very cool when people say “Wow ! What is that? I never saw that before.”
So, less reading, more video. I think it would be best for you to witness the cool side of the sport yourself through video. So I prepared few Youtube video and put it in between the passages.
Lastly I would like to help promote this new sport to Malaysia and hopes that I will got some friends to play with when I go back to Malaysia for vacation. I will buy this Freeline skate by this tuesday when I got my money banked in for me. ^^ Also, here are some links for you if you want to buy it. Sorry the link provided are for the use in Japan only. Do some Google searching if you are in Malaysia.
UPDATE!! I had just won the Auction in Yahoo Auction for the skates. Meant that I will most possibly getting the getting by wednesday or thursday ^^
